According to the State Department, the "communists" are the second-place leaders of terrorism behind Islam today. Daniel Pipes has the leading website on "Islammunism," but there are only fewer than 500 Google references to "Islammunism" while there are almost one million Google references to "Islamofascism."
We're not surprised to see Pipes, who is so influential in the Bush administration and who holds various jobs there, uphold communism as a greater threat than fascism. Many Euro-Amerikans would not have served in World War II to fight fascism.
U.$. puppet Arroyo in the Philippines would probably go for a "war on Islammunism." She justifies propping herself up with martial law by pointing to communist and Islamic threats.
On the whole though, the imperialists and their media are going with "Islamofascism." This reflects the needs of uniting sexual liberals in the united $tates to the Crusade, but also, it reflects more accurately the international possibilities of struggle. Russia and China might not go for "Islammunism." They remember fascism being a greater danger than communism, like most of the world. There is also a consideration of Cuba and like places.
If Bush were serious about "Islamofascism," he would take the few supposed communists and leftists off the State Department "Foreign Terrorist Organization" list. So he is not quite comfortable with the term either and often says "totalitarianism."
MIM would stress that getting one's party off the list is not enough. A whole country has to get off the list. It would do no good to get a communist organization off the list while Bush still reserved the right to invade to fight Islam. Amerikkkans are not paying enough attention to know if he is really attacking Islam or something else when he invades a country. In the immediate days after 9/11, Amerikans linked the Philippines to the problem of Islam and told pollsters they would support U.$. attacks no matter what the government there said. It's not a very accurate view of the Philippines, but that never stopped Amerikans before.
One big international consideration for Bush is I$rael, but we are sure that as long as "Islam" is in there in Bush's choice of terms, many Zionists will support Bush.
No one knows what history books Bush Jr. read, but the fascism history I read said communists had the lead role in the struggle to smash them. Right now Bush has the communists as the second-most "terrorist." I missed that part in World War II, along with the part where the "totalitarians" like Kim Jong Il are for privatizing nuclear weapons. So I guess one of us is confused.
In fact, "Islammunism" is a more accurate indication of how Bush sees his enemies. The term targets any justification for resistance to U.$. national or class politics. There's no communism in the united $tates and not much more in England and Australia, so it is surprising that the term "Islammunism" did not take greater hold in those countries. The Islamic and communist people are especially active in the Third World.
Bush is losing his Christian vote, so this would be a good time for him to find the libertarian vote. Instead he has a steady grind of war and repression.
There were less than 3000 deaths on 9/11 and other countries suffer a thousand times that many every year because of regimes backed by the united $tates. It was inevitable that Bush's "war on terror" would lose its international welcome, because it does not address the interests of most people in the world. Bush's rhetoric is rather harsh to the world, because the world does not share Bush's interests. He can talk about a few thousand murders all he wants, but other countries suffer much worse.
MIM would welcome the term "Islammunism" as Bush's preferred term of attack. It reflects who he is actually attacking. He is propping up fascist lackeys all around the world, people like Arroyo in the Philippines and Bush himself is not terribly popular even among the mushiest of supposed communists. Had Bush really undertaken a war against fascism in the last five years, Amerikkkans would not be so unpopular right now.
